Above is the map of how far Queendom Website has traveled,  

nice for MacSoph and me, but doubly nice because it shows that needlework is indeed alive and well right round the world.

In my next life...

Here is who I want to be.

Isn't he beautiful?

My only problem with turning into him:

I dont want to be a man.


My World of Needlework


Hello. 2021, please bring a more settled world and lots and lots of stitching time!


Here we are, approaching the middle of January  and we still have chaos all around us.


Solution? Stitch More, of course.


Audrey, Carolyn Elworthy and Leslie Durst in 2005 at EGA's one woman show of Audrey's work.

Hello 2021, I Hope You Are Different

Many of us still face some long stretches of isolation, so let's make the most of our time and hope that things are better in the months to come.










Mary-Anne's Echoes Ornaments


How clever is this!

Mary-Anne was practicing the cutwork from Echoes and she made both practice sessions into ornaments.

Mary-Anne's Countess Geometric

Look at how Mary- Anne extended the size of the Countess Geometric from my Downton Abbey series by adding a pretty border.

At the top of my List this Year:  A Little Creativity!

Bring a bit of yourself to your needlework, as Mary-Anne Plousos has done. Thanks, Mary-Anne! You illustrate this point so well!

In the Next Days:

A Series of Box Tops


Here is a second Box Top Geometric, this one larger than the first. This one too from my Echoes series.


I can tell when I stitched it because of the beads on it. I remember approximately when I received the beads,  mostly vintage nailheads.

Pearls and some vintage metal sequins which are so rare finish it off.





In the Next Days:

A Series of Box Tops


I am back to sorting and I've come across a series of designs for Box Tops that I stitched but never wrote.


Here is the first one: a small 5" square design derived from my Echoes series, with pearls and red, charcoal and red beads.


I've auditioned it in a black and gold box and I also framed it.
